as well. he asked a lot of questions of the obama administration's lawyer here saying which state does a better job of registering and getting a turnout of african-american voters compared to whites? he said the answer is mississippi. which does the worst? the answer is massachusetts. the point being he says the areas covered by the law may not be where the problem is. that's what the whole argument came down to today, i think, chris. is the voting rights act passed and reenacted in 2006 still a fit? does it still cover where the problems are? now, the four liberals on the right said yes. it may not be a perfect fit, but it's close enough. they said the areas covered by the law represent about a quarter of the population, but account for more than half of all the successful voter discriminations lawsuits. the five conservatives seemed to be quite skeptical. not only scalia and justice roberts but perhaps the critical vote justice kennedy. he said the times changed. he seemed to be skeptical that the law has not kept up with that change. now, it's hard to predict, chris, but it does app
world and the real-estate world. people are still walking away from loans. mr. obama who you had on a moment ago, he gave cover for the gaping holes in the banking system. every 40 or 50 years, real- estate does this. it creates problems and is a drag. i hope that somehow we are able to get through this. thankfully, the best technological invention ever made is the mute button. you use it when the president comes on tv. it is so nice. host: a couple of stories from "arizona republic." talking about remaining allusive, according to the headline, "the president's allies in the peace process gained traction." host: this follows up in today's "the washington post," in the world section.

america and president obama. it includes a simulated nuclear explosion. the video posts on you-tube also shows the president and american troops in flames. it says north korea conducted its recent nuclear tests because of what it calls u.s. hostility. the u.s. is currently negotiating for stronger united nations sanctions against north korea for the nuclear tests. >>> president obama is looking for another candidate to lead the u.s. and allied forces in europe. marine corps general john allen was in line to fill that position but decided to retire. last fall the pentagon suspended allen's nomination during an investigation into his e-mails with a florida socialite. he was later cleared of any wrongdoing. the investigation has nothing to do with his decision to retire. instead, he says, his primary concern right now is his wife who is dealing with health issues. >>> 5:18 right now. an education department commission recommending preschool for poor students within ten years. that 52-page report adds a time frame to president barack obama's call to expand preschool education. this commissio

of young democrats. to hear this man talk was really astounding. i am quite critical of the obama administration in terms of things i have done. in terms of hagel's nomination, i am very impressed. his views on foreign-policy almost seemed to dip -- too far beyond this era. my only feel is that the political parties will bring this ideology down simply because a lot of people are not prepared for it. thank you and have a good day. guest: i think -- i would beg to differ about the too far beyond this era. i had the privilege of working for former secretary of state george schultz. in my estimation, senator hagel's views are consistent with secretary schultz, whom i think is one of the giants of our time. i think they have the same sort of outlook of trying to be pragmatic and take a look at things from multiple dimensions and informed judgments based on the conditions of the time. i think we have had many people of this particular persuasion. we have been fortunate in our country to have many leaders like senator hagel. i share your hope that we continue to have them going forward.
, and they have at the most popular politician in the country behind their back. president obama said he is ready to work with them. notably he and former president bill clinton had become more eager to get ahead, more progressive, vs senate democrats. you've got to be ready to compromise a little bit with the other elements of congress in the coming months. you are going to have defections when it comes to gun control, immigration, and what we may have to do with a fiscal policy. host: you touch on that point, an unlikely ally for house democrats, the speaker of the house, john boehner. guest: that is something that many democrats have pointed out. he made -- he may need them to get some of these bills passed. as he did with the debt ceiling vote. as he did with the bill for hurricane sandy victims. as it came with the fiscal cliff agreement. i see that as a possibility with a gun control and immigration, because while republicans cannot be eager and willing to discuss the issues, pulling suggest that the house may have to pass something. i will meet democrats. host: -- they will need democrats.

to get a sense on how significant a dent that could put in the relationship if president obama says no to the keystone. >> i think it depends on how it is managed between the two leaders. this is a case in which the prime minister believes this is an important issue for canada. it was understandable in the context of the run-up to the presidential election campaign the last time that he was saying no and there were other issues that were more of a local nature as well at the site, it could be accepted as something that was more in the nature of the delay and a flat-out refusal. i think it will be meaningful. it will be important how it is explained if the answer is no. what is the justification? what is the reality that is perceived to come out of it? if their reasons are door that you describe them, i will be found -- that will be found unacceptable and that would be a problem. >> in talking to canadian politicians, there are some things out of joint. a lot of it has to do with the suggestion that if canada were to do more on the climate change front, this might help us. canadian p

that upheld the individual mandate provision of president obama's health care reform legislation, and i'm wondering, for those of us who are observers of the court, apart from the holding in the case, what lessons might we learn from the experience of that case? >> i hope it's a case that will be taught in law schools. i fully expect that my defense saying that this legislation fit within the commerce clause easily, that that will someday become the law of the land. i was astonished, frankly, at the majority view about that case. but i think it's a wonderful teaching tool. and as you know, the law and the meaning was a failed. achieve -- was upheld. the chief justice decided it didn't fit within the commerce power but the tax power is very broad, so what the law calls a penalty was, in fact, a tax and so it was upheld on that basis. so i do think the commerce clause ruling will turn out to be an aberration. and you can compare it to the way it was before 1937. when the court, now referred to as nine old men, and they were striking down economic and social legislation from the states, fr
environmental issues among our top priorities. as president obama stressed in his state of the union address earlier this week, there is an undeniable trend of warmer climates and a rise in the frequency of natural disasters which cause devastation across this nation. we are headed in the wrong direction, and we need serious action to protect our planet. we can fight global warming while still growing our economy. we can do it by investing in clean renewable resources like wind and solar with equipment produced right here in the united states of america. by dealing seriously with environmental issues, we can boost our economy, decrease our reliance on foreign oil and leave a better world for our children. these should be our top priorities as members of congress, as citizens and as parents and it is time these issues receive the attention that they deserve. i yield the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from utah rise? >> mr. speaker, i rise to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentle

this in both the bush administration and now in the obama administration. clearly, whatever limits, and i think the limits are very severe now on the demilitarized zone dealing with the proliferation question at all, but any prospect of dealing with it i think is nonexistent, as long as the state department maintains this kind of blackout policy and, not only dividing any information about it, but and, frankly, wanted to do with this at all in negotiations with north korea. chris hill took it off the table february agreement. did not mention proliferation. and that's just an example of the situation. so this relationship that north korea has with iran i believe has entered a new and more formidable and threatening stage, frankly, at this point. >> thank you, larry. if there is someone from state department. representing the state department right here. okay. the floor is open. anybody can comment to joe's comment, larry's, argument, what not. the floor is open. raise your hand. identify yourself. okay, would you come up? >> [inaudible] >> standby microphone, please. thank you. >> this question
